The Grape Arbor Has Eyes !

I was cooking in the kitchen today and happened to look out the window towards the coop.  Something wasn't right, and I was going to continue to stare at it until I see movement of any kind.  Finally I saw it.  See the bird house on top of the grape arbor?  Yeah.  That turkey isn't supposed to be there.

Not only were the turkeys chowing down on some grapes, but so were some of my guinea's.  I guess they didn't want to eat the grapes that had fallen on the ground...

Looky at what I found!  I have been looking for one of these stools for the kitchen forever!  I would like to think that my grandma had one of these in her kitchen way back in the 40's and 50's.  I wouldn't know that she did since I wasn't around back in those days.  You gotta remember, I am a young'un.

Here is something else I found!  I am very excited about this little thing.  It is a Sweetheart wood cook stove.  And not all that old!  This stove is in such good condition, and I can't wait to bake my bread in this, and my cinnamon rolls!

It needs a good cleaning.  And a good polishing.

I will be able to add wood to the firebox either from the top or from the front.

It also came with the heat shield, exterior and interior chimney, the chimney cap, and other things.  What a find!

It has the warming cupboard on top, maybe to warm up the plates, or Thanksgiving rolls?

 Right now there is a cow in the cupboard.  We really aren't sure where the stove is going.  We thought we would put it where our free standing stove is in the dining room, but we kind of want the option of heating with propane if need be.  We have a contractor coming out this week to give us some pointers.  It would be nice to be able to keep the propane stove, but we'll see.  Stay tuned.  And stay warm.  Beside a wood cook stove.  With a cup of tea.  You get my drift.
